still trying to make it all political. and susan rice, not even nominated yet as secretary of state and she may not be. obama could decide to go with john kerry or jane armen or who knows who else, right? susan rice has to go up to the united states senate today and meet with -- she will, meet with john mccain and lindsey graham and a couple of other senators and try to explain herself. she shouldn't have to do that. i think it is embarrassing. kevin is calling from chicago. what do you think kevin? >> caller: hey, how do youing, bill? >> bill: good to hear from you. >> caller: if they were a legitimate news organization, wouldn't you go with the fact -- take whatever your guest says and you go with it. but since everybody knows they're the mouthpiece of the republicans, i find it amusing that they're so inept they don't even see what their guest is going to say. it is like how dumb are they? it just reinforcing the bumper sticker on my car as i drive to work this morning. fox news, the more you watch the less you know. >> bill: i like that! send me one. where did you get it? kevin,

the norquist tax pledge and certainly the susan rice, these are noises that you made to sound conciliatory after an election, and we think back to 2009. the republicans sounded very conciliatory in the days after president obama's reelection when he was holding a high approval rating, but by april or may of his first year that that had melted away. so right now is happy talk from the republicans. we will see whether that materializes into votes. lou: such happy talk, why aren't there more smiling faces in the republican party? >> pretty unhappy talk from what i can tell, and to this point pretty frivolous. you see members of the united states senate demand is not even their negotiations, but taking a timeout to beat up on grover norquist to is some on elected activists type who was not a player in this and does not have a seat at the negotiating table, was not elected. what does he have to do with any of this? is seems to me this is the opportunity for the republicans in the house, but also to some extent in the senate to explain what they want to know what kind of entitlement

from this meeting that rice had with the three senators, a new poll shows that a majority of the public does not think the obama administration is hiding anything when it comes to benghazi. 54% of people surveyed are not happy with how the administration handled its response to the attack but say it's not because they think there's any sort of cover up. most think the administration was simply conveying the best information it had at the time. and finally in lucky for us news, rick santorum is saying he is open to another run for president in 2016. he tells the weekly standard there is a fight right now for the conservative soul of the republican party and he is not backing down. i say go ahead and run. we're back after the break. >>i jump out of my skin at people when i'm upset. they're doing this this corruption based on corruption based on corruption. >>that's an understatement, eliot. unwrap your paradise. soft, sweet coconut covered in rich, creamy chocolate. almond joy and mounds. unwrap paradise. before the sneeze, help protect with a spray. before the tissue, help defend

on the schedule of senator bob corker, a republican from tennessee who has been critical of rice over the past several weeks telling reporters that she sounds more like the head of the democratic national committee when talking about what's going on with the obama administration, and that doesn't sound like a positive secretary of state to him because they need to show their ability to be independent. but, again, senator corker's office now saying they believe they have a private meeting with ambassador rice. >>> it's often lost in politics of the fiscal cliff is how a cliff dive will actually impact your personal finances. and whether you have a job or not if you pay taxes, you're going to take a hit. first place you're going to see it, the federal tax rate for a middle income family. and that means an extra $2,000 out of pocket. next is the payroll tax. if you make, say, $50,000 a year, that's another $1,000 that you're going to fork over to uncle sam. then there is the alternative minimum tax, 27 million will be hit with this for the first time ever. and it's a separate calcul

used were politicized in order to keep up the idea that the obama administration had been a very successful in getting rid of al qaeda and of course as you heard from that statement just now, susan rice denies that. >> i have a question here. why is it that these senators believe that she should have come out with the full story to the american people? why is it that they don't believe or understand that perhaps she was trying to not give all that information out because they were dealing with perhaps terrorist organization, that he didn't want to really tip their hand if you will, fully in disclosing everything that they knew at that time? >> reporter: that's a great question. the -- and it's one that i talked to some of the senators about afterwards, who were in that meeting. the crux of it is, they feel that even if she was unable to say a lot publicly because there was only limited amount unclassified, she should have had classified information that could -- should have directed her public comments to be maybe more conservative in talking publicly about al qaeda. specifically
